Hi Jordi,

Sorry for the very late reply,
Kdenlive is relying on MLT for all multimedia processing,
and it is not architectured for these direct renderings:
those are incompatible with any mixing or effect...
one can't target every use case.

You won't lose visible quality when you encode with
a good VBR quality setting, or a high CBR bitrate;
you just loose time vs avidemux method.
